Colonia del Sacramento, located 177 kilometers from the Uruguayan capital, is recognized worldwide for its historical charm and colonial architecture. Its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. There, Portuguese and Spanish urban and architectural styles merge, testimony to the constant confrontations between these powerful empires during the colonial era since its founding in 1680. The city offers a wide range of quality hotels, ranging from international hotels to typical inns housed in old colonial houses. It also has a variety of lively and quaint restaurants. Museums, theater, arts and crafts complete the options for visitors.
